« Part 3: Design Origins Part 4 of Chair One series Part 5: This is why they made machines... »

Afraid to make a mistake, I kept procrastinating until my design was finalized to the mm, but I realized I was just procrastinating and I had to start. So I made some rough measurements, and the sawing began with cherry planks I had bought last fall.

This is going to be a lot of rip sawing. If there was only some kind of machine for this…I kid I kid!

I am getting Peter G.’s new book, so I’ve started down yet another slippery slope. See you at the bottom!

Did you alter the design very much? The pic you posted in the last post does not look like it would lend itself readily to much change I will be looking forward to your build process.

Kevin – yeah can’t wait for my copy, I think a couple more weeks. Although I’m not building a Windsor, I’m sure there’s a wealth of knowledge in there.

The design hasn’t changed much, although some of the joinery is still up in question, but I think seeing the wood grain and how things look will probably make me decide one way or another. Please keep your expectations low for this chair build, it might end quicker than I hope ;)
